The Big Red Run

250km, 6 day stage race

8.30 am Wednesday 2nd July-Monday 7th July 2014

Safety Information

The safety of the participants is the highest priority for the race organisers. Safety comes first before anything else, which means that if the event has to be called off or suspended due to any issue that may compromise the safety of competitors, the organisers will not hesitate to do that.

We have a full risk management plan in place that has been developed specifically for the event, and this is implemented through the event safety plan.

Each runner is issued with a full course map, and instructions on what to do in the event of an emergency or a situation requiring course evacuation.

All volunteers are issued with a crew booklet with emergency details and contact details of all people they may need to contact during the event. All key event officials will have a radio or Satellite phone for communications.

The event will have a high level of IT and communications infrastructure in place, including satellite phones for key event staff and volunteers, and internet connection at campsite.

There will also be a duplex radio communications system across the course allowing all event officials to be in constant radio communications throughout the event.

                              

                       

Each competitor in the Big Red Run will have a GPS tracker to enable the race organisers to keep track their exact location at any point in time, and also allow participants to signal for help should they require assistance at any point in time.

There will be a helicopter on hand at all times throughout the event for emergency and first aid use if required.

Video, pictures and results from the event will be posted to the event website regularly throughout the event, so people in the outside world can keep up to date with all of the action from the event as it unfolds.
